Non-video gaming

Merger of surround sound with hypnosis logic
  [vote for,

By educating the user as to the specifics of an audio "item," the user is forced to quantify a belief system in an all-audio, non-video gaming environment that uses a minimum of four-channel audio set as follows: Front Up-Down, Rear Left-Right, so that there is a four-plane spatial environment. By merging the entire discourse of the verbal tracks into the EULA prior to the gaming experience, the user accepts all liability from such belief-system applications, and thus, adapts a conviction of belief to the gaming environment, allowing user to escape reality.

(??) Real Sound: Kaze no Regret http://www.loonygam.../mouth/index2.shtml
A game with no visuals. (I still don't understand the mumbo-jumbo idea description though.) [pottedstu, Oct 04 2004]


       What you're saying is it's a computer multimedia gaming experience in whcih there are no visuals, only audio and tactile feedback. Interesting concept if a worthwhile game could be made of it.

       games for the deaf - i guess a maze game where the walls eminated a low hum would be a good practise practise for this - programmers; go forth and hum!

       [miasere] surley this would be even harder for deaf people?

       The game Real Sound: Kaze no Regret for the Sega Saturn and Dreamcast developed by Warp featured no visuals at all, just music and sound effects. (see link).   

       (Fishbone for awful idea description.)

       Actually, many deaf folk pick up bass well - so a low hum won't hurt the fishing.

       Some students in the Netherlands made a racing game for the blind. It's completely sound-oriented and it's called Drive. You can play it at www.soundsupport.net

       I'm confused. Still I think I get the general idea. But why not use video as well?
